NOx/SOx Emissions and Carbon Abatement

This paper provides evidence on the reductions of NOx/SOx emissions induced by the adoption of carbon abatement policies. It describes the methodology to compute emissions of these pollutants and the way they were introduced in the OECD GREEN model. This required a compromise between the “top-down” structure of the model and the very detailed information that, in principle, is required to compute NOx/SOx emissions. The simulation results suggest that, on average, the reductions relative to Baseline levels of NOx/SOx emissions may be in the same order of magnitude or are higher than the abatement imposed on carbon emissions ... Cette étude analyse les effets de réduction des émissions de NOx/SOx dus à la mise en place de politiques visant à réduire les émissions de carbone. Elle décrit la méthodologie pour calculer des émissions de ces polluants et la façon selon laquelle ils ont été introduits dans le modèle GREEN de l OCDE. Cela résulte d un compromis entre la structure assez agrégée du modèle et l information très détaillée nécessaire au calcul des émissions de NOx/SOx. Les résultats des simulations suggèrent, qu en moyenne, les réductions des émissions de NOx/SOx par rapport au scénario de référence peuvent être dans le même ordre de magnitude ou supérieures à la réduction imposée sur les émissions de carbone ...
